 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Encyclopaedia of Sikhism (2 vols), primarily contains all about the great religion which emerged as an independent, conspicuous and sovereign dispensation. The volumes compile comprehensive references from A-Z about the Sikh religion viz. Sikh scriptures, philosophy and doctrine, mythology, theology, Guru Granth Sahib, hymns, the Great Gurudwaras associated with the lives of Great Gurus, and the incidents associated with them, references to socio-religious movements, Sikh culture, Sikh people and their customs, fairs, social status of women. The encyclopaedia traces the emergence of all terms since the days of founder Guru, Guru Nanak and illustrates the contents with historical evidence. It also has references to Sikh wars with the Mughals. Each word which has relevant value and meaning to Sikhs has been selected and included in these volumes. Summarily, the encyclopaedia has tried to gather and narrate all relevant information, from reliable and succinct sources in order to find all information at one place. A large number of documents and monographs on the subject have appeared so far, but the treatment of the subject here is very simple, lucid and easy to understand. At some places etymological treatment has been provided to several terms which appear interesting while consulting. Therefore the present volumes distinguish themselves from others on the basis of several characteristics. The encyclopaedia of Sikhism will be of immense value for researchers historian and students of Sikh history. A very useful reference book on the Sikhs and Sikh religion and worthy of acquisition for each library and information centre.
